Question of the Week: When you make a “blind purchase” (buy a beauty product without ever having seen it in person), how important is it to you to read reviews first? Have you ever made a blind purchase without reading a single review?
ANSWER: I have absolutely never purchased something without looking for a review first. I have made blind purchases when I can’t find anything out there on a specific product that is brand new, but it is a rare thing that I can’t find SOMETHING or someone talking about it. The internet is an invaluable tool. There are so many people sharing their honest opinions on anything and everything and I, for one, definitely make use of those resources.
